If you like Dragon’s Crown and like video game-inspired figures you don’t want to miss this one. Last week the summer version of Wonder Festival 2013 was held at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba City, near Tokyo. Wonder Festival is the biggest event for Garage Kit figures, many of which are made by extremely skilled artisans in very small quantities.
With the recent release in Japan of Dragon’s Crown, of course there were a few dedicated entries, and thanks to a few Japanese enthusiast blogs and websites that were there on the spot with cameras, we can show you some of those beauties. You may want to be mindful of your surroundings before you scroll down further, though, as some of the pictures below may not be safe for work, depending on your workplace. You’ve been warned.
Let’s start with the most mainstream (but no less beautiful) pair: the Amazon and the Elf by Megahouse (pictures courtesy of Amiblo and Akiba Hobby). Since Megahouse actually sells overseas, you may even be able to get your hands on one of these sooner or later.
Then let’s move to a real treat, The Amazon and the Sorceress by MADHANDS (pictures courtesy of fg-site.net). In the gallery below you can also see the box artwork for both figures by Dai (Add-Ict). Now you know why they call it “Wonder” Festival.
Before I leave you with the pictures, if you want to see another lovely Dragon’s Crown figure, you can check out the prototype of the Sorceress by Alphamax in my previous post about the dedicated art exhibition in Tokyo.
